“Artists like Robert Smithson, Donald Judd and Peter Hutchinson borrowed liberally from science fiction film and literature in their work. This collage treats the marvellous, seemingly indestructible, objects of mid-century science fiction cinema as artworks in their own right.”

Supported by UQ Art Museum and Monash University Museum of Art.

Screenings:

29th May, 2018 – UQ Art Museum, in conjunction with the ‘Robert Smithson: Time Crystals’ exhibition
